    They definitely skew toward the middle aged and older crowd. If they dont get younger riders to attend they won't have a choice but to stop cause they'll all age out!
    And a few my age or older, who'd a thought.

    Because of the fire closures the last 4 years….the traditional route has not been doable.

    This was kind of a stop gap type route to use was was available. It was not ideal….the route was horrible. After 2 years of not having events….people signed up just to do something.

    the traditional VQ route is a solid ride. For in shape riders, it’s easily doable. For weekend warriors it is truly a test of your abilities and mental strength.

    What is DNS?
    I know DNF and only a few of those.
    And DFL, we can see that one.

    As J says, it's "Did not Start/Show", which is worse than DNF.

    I signed up 100 years ago when we thought that the normal course would be open "after" the pandemic... The Warriors sent emails over the last year saying that anyone who wanted to be removed from the event just had to send an email.

    Sounds like sign up for 2023 is tonight. That’s what my buddy said. Although on the Warriors Society site they have a countdown to tomorrow for sign up and also says sign up is in February. Color me confused! Anyone doing it?

    If it were the real VQ course, I'd sign up in a second... I'll pass on the current offering.

    Nope.

    2017 was good enough for me for a decade, still got mud in my ears from it.

    How things have changed. I remember logging in on the computer at midnight and hoping I got a spot. It would sell out in minutes.

    And if you didn't see the check box for the ~2008 DVD you had to go back and find that, thus losing your chance to secure a spot in the first five minutes, cuz it sold out in six -at midnite, on a Friday or something.
    The only time I attempted the CC, I was on a trip and had to wake up for midnight to try and register, and succeeded.
    When it came to the "race" I was OTB immediately.
    That was the first time I met and rode with J.
    He was probably more sore than me having to ride so slow from Motorway to 4Corners when I missed the cutoff.
